On Fridays We Wear Pink


Recommended listening to accompany this reading: Janelle Monae – “Pynk

Pink is my favorite color – it has been ever since my adolescent self gained some sense and stopped thinking it was uncool for girls for like pink. Pink occurs to many as a color of excess, usually due to the fact that it is bright, retina-smashing, and enables one to command space. For some unknown reason, people who take up space, particularly femmes, are frowned upon by some. But folks, those who frown upon thee simply wish they were able to exude the same undefeated power as an unabashed wearer of pink.

Fortunately for all you fans of pink, we have an uncontested selection of pink tops and frocks here at Queen of Hearts and Modern Love. On this here blog post, you can find out which is the one for you!

BB Gurl Dress


OK, so this one is *peach*. But look at this perfect cut, unique sleeve, and delicate first date-esque print. This garment is reminiscent of something that pink-wearing country maven Dolly Parton would have worked in the 80s, before her drastic switch to metallics. Accents of blue gingham give this look a charming handmade touch, and the perfectly placed waist tie makes for a flattering fit for all shapes and sizes!


Wrap Me Up Dress


A slight variation of BB Girl Dress! Although it has the same silhouette, sleeve, and feel, The Wrap Me Up is complete with its own charms – a thick fabric that mimics 50s and 60s fashion, as well as a solid baby pink for unbeatable polish!


Donna Crop Top


The smocked fabric of the Donna is a nod to 2000s street fashion with a modern twist. It is as versatile as a tee, but also has the ability to dress up a pair of jeans (wide-leg are suggested, but whatever your preference is will certainly work).

Or, for that matter, follow #queenofheartsbabe Dara’s lead and pair it with our Volcom Need Now Pant (available in-store), or a classy/sassy Hampton Fedora from Brixton!

Kate Crossbody Clutches

in Barely Pink and Pink Lemonade

As the name suggests, the Kate Crossbody clutch doubles as a crossbody bag and a clutch, and has sufficient pockets for all your pink and non-pink belongings, including cash, cards, change, and your smartphone! Barely Pink is a barely-there dusty rose, and Pink Lemonade is reminiscent of a peachy sorbet.


The Stoned Scraper Short


These shorts are fabulous, flattering, and look like a sophisticated ice cream parlor if an ice cream parlor was a pair of shorts. They also fall to the perfect length to keep you cool during the hot summer months, and are high waisted – they reach the belly button, so they pass my personal test with flying colors.

Did I forget to mention that these are also GREAT shorts for helping one reach their full butt potential, as demonstrated by our friends at Buns and Bites!

Because this shade of lip varnish is the best. It’s simple as that.
